Your accommodation on the Banks Peninsula Track is renowned for its individuality, comfort and great locations, and for the extra touches that add a dash of luxury to the 'hiking', 'trekking', or 'tramping' experience.
Each of the four huts of the Banks Peninsula Track are completely different, ranging from the purpose built lodge at Onuku and colonial cottages of Stony Bay through to the old farm cottage at Flea Bay and original farm homestead at Otanerito.
View the individual accommodations in the panels below.
